One of the very first things we did to "go green" was to ditch those body washes and shower gels that come in plastic containers and go back to good old fashioned, no-waste bar soap. Easy change. A year or so later I decided to see if I could eliminate shampoo and conditioner in plastic bottles as well. That didn't go as smoothly. Let's just say the "no poo" thing wasn't for me. My hair was a hot mess.
I counted the whole experiment as a green fail and moved on with my life, coming to terms with the fact that I'd probably always use shampoo and conditioner. Until, that is, 3 Way Beauty asked me to try their Shhh bar.
"Shampoo, shower and shave. No shit."
It's as easy as that. Use this one little bar to replace your shampoo, your soap and your shaving cream.
To me this seems like the perfect gift for a traveler. Whether you're packing light for a trip to another country, or you're jaunting to the mountains for the weekend and don't want to lug every product you own along.
Shhh makes a great gift for the man in your life because, let's face it, they're not know for their desire to use multiple products when getting ready. When I handed the sample to my husband he mumbled something to the effect of, "Finally, somebody's listening to me."
I loved the soap too. It was nice to have one do-it-all product in the shower - especially one that involved no plastic! I did find that I needed to use my regular shampoo about one a week, but my hair is long, inexplicably thick, coarse and naturally
The Shhh bar comes in a 1.5 oz size for $5 (hello stocking stuffer!) and 6 oz for $17 which, in my opinion, is not a bad price for replacing three products.
Shhh is manufactured in Minnesota by a family-run company in a 100% hydro powered mill. The bars are free of synthetics, preservatives, artificial fragrance and coloring. All packaging is 100% compostable and recyclable, making it a great Green the Season gift!
Of course, I'll be giving away a small Shhh bar this week. There are two ways to enter:
